As a child, I used to play at the edge of a pond near the family home. Lonely, I liked to throw stones in the water and wait with growing pleasure, the ripples, these perfect circles gradually invading the surface of the water. I tried to bounce small flat stones and was particularly proud of the number of ricochets obtained.
As an adult, we sometimes replay it like a child, finding the soft and painful sensation at the same time, of innocent and vanished joy. I had in mind this simple game and in the heart, the childish joy that was mine, when I created this jewel. The little boy, momentarily found, threw a diamond into molten gold to once again feel this malicious joy in front of the same ripples as those of the pond of his childhood.
